I am a young and zealous therapist who is passionate about my work with youth and adolescents.

Additionally I am currently temporarily licensed in Maine, Vermont, Minnesota, and Montana. I have been in the field of Social Work since 2015 and have amassed skills providing direct clinical services to youth and adolescents and indirect consultation services on program development for youth serving programs.

I developed competence working with youth and adolescents with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, LGBTQ issues and Adjustment issues, to name a few.
